Description:
The document represents the initial work of The Physical Activity group, established by the Chief Executive Officers of the Health Boards. In drawing up the Strategy, there were a few key considerations for the group. The fust was that we were working through the Office for Health Gain whose essential purpose is to facilitate jOint working by the Health Boards to achieve measurable health gain. The second was that although physical activity is an important element of a healthy lifestyle, the health service up to the present time has not been to the forefront in promoting physical activity. Finally we were very conscious of the fact that the Health Boards acting alone would not be able to achieve the goal of getting our population more active.
